TRAKing Pat demonstrates how to use DXF files with the ProtoTRAK RLX CNC. Using DXF files in the RLX is made easy with through software enhancements and new features like the control's LCD touchscreen.
The DXF converter option is available for all TRAK RX Series Lathes.
View the entire file and select the layers you want to machine.
Program the events in the order you choose. It's easy to fill in the prompts once the event type and dimensions are loaded.
Program the entire geometry of Pocket or Profile peripheries with just two clicks — tell ProtoTRAK where to start then tell it which direction to go.
The rest of the connected events are loaded automatically. The 12 events here were programmed easily by clicking two lines.
If lines drawn in a DXF file can't be machined as drawn, the DXF converter enables you to insert or hide lines to get past these problems. No need to go back to the CAD department.
